First Fiction Known.
The oldest work of Action extant
Is thought to be the "Tale of Two Broth-
ers,” written 3,200 years ago by the
Theban scribe Ennana, librarian of the
palace of King Monepthah, the sup-
posed Pharaoh of the Exodus. The
tnle. It appears, was written for tht
entertainment of the crown prince,
who subsequently reigned as Seti II.
His Dime appears In two places In the
manuscript, probably the only surviv-
ing autograph Signature of an Egypt-
ian king. This piece of antique Action,
written on nineteen sheets of papyrus
in a hold hieratic hand, was purchased
In Italy by Mine. d’Orblney. who sold
It In 1837 to the authorities of the
British museum, where It Is now
known as the D’Orbluey papyrus.

The heaver Is a very scarce nniina'

It la absolutely forbidden to kill the
animal. The farmers, however, claim
that the beavers do-great damage to
their forests and have now asked the
government for right to kill them off
whenever It can be proved that they
ore doing damage. If not allowed to
kill the animals the farmers will ask
the government to reimburse them for
the damage done to their property.

la these simple words. Gen-
eral Pershing gave eloquent ex-
pression to the thought that
America today Is but paying
her debt to France.
The words of General Pershing were
spoken us he stood ut the tomb of
I.afayette, French aristocrat by birth
but democrat ut heart, who gave his
own services and fortune to the cause
of American Independent's and was In-
strumental in bringing from France the
aid that turned the tide In favor of the
Those of the present generation who
are not familiar with early American
history are apt not to realize the mag-
nitude of the debt which the United
States owes to France and to the mem-
ory of the gallant Lafayette. In the
dark hours before the dawn of free-
dom for America, France poured forth
her men and money in quantities that
were In those days most Impressive.
It is not generally remembered that
France furnished more troops than
America at the battle of Yorktowu,
where Anal victory was won for the
struggling colonists. In that battle
there were engaged 3,300 militia un-
der Gen. Thomas Nelson, 0,300 conti-
nentals under Generals Washington,
Lafayette and Alexander Hamilton und
7,000 French under Bocimmbenu, be-
sides the French Aoet of nineteen ships
at nnchor In the York, commanded by
Do Grasse. Altogether, the total 'mil-
itary, naval and transport service
which France sent to our aid 111 the
American revolution amounted to 47.-
080 men and 99 vessels of war and
Gave Money as Well as Men.
France, moreover, advanced to the
depleted treasury of the revolutionists
tlio equivalent of $50,000,000, without
Interest, a loan or gift which she lias
never claimed. Furthermore she
agreed, und adhered absolutely to the
compact, that she would ask no share
111 such territory or booty us might he
Incident to victory. Tills agreement
was the more remarkable in view of
the fact that England had but n short
time before tuken the richest of French
possessions—the Dominion of Canada.
And it was almost wholly due to
Lafayette that thic Invaluable aid was
given hy France to the new republic.
At the time of the declaration of in-
dependence of the United States,
Lafayette was only In his nineteenth
year. His life had been one of ease
und luxury. His family was among
the most eminent In France. He was
a nobleman with the title of marquis.
He never had encountered those Influ-
ences that usually lead people In the
flglit for democracy. But, as If It were
« vision calling him Lafayette saw the
»o\v spark of liberty struck In the
West. The greotest light of the world
was being fought for the greatest Ideal
In the world.
The youth of nineteen realized tills,
and in the flght he was determined to
take part. He made known his Inten-
tion, hut he was forbidden hy royal
command to leave France. He escaped
to Spain, and from there aboard a ves-
sel he had purchased himself sailed for
America. He landed In Charleston
and set forth Immediately to congress,
which was then In session at Phila-
Congress at First Lukewarm.
His name and fame hud preceded
him, yet such was the unsettled state
of affairs that when Lafayette went to
Philadelphia congress was nt flrst luke-
warm concerning him. Rome of the
members could not sense the zeal nnd
devotion of a man who had come 3,000

ington at once welcomed him to his
stalT. As soon ns the opportunity of-
fered the leader of the Continental
army put Lafayette in command of
large bodies of men nud that judgment
was well Justified.
The marquis was severely wounded
at Brandywine without being aware of
it for a time, so intense was his devo-
tion to duty. When he recovered he
renewed his activities at the right hand
of General Washington, and lost no
opportunity to serve the nation which
was then coming into being. He was
with the great leader at Valley Forge,
where he conducted himself with such
sympathy and understanding that lie
was soon as beloved by all the officers
ns by the commander lilmself.

That victory ultimately rested upon

due to those activities In Paris, for the
